Like any assessment, CAT assessments are not perfectly reliable, and a correction for attenuation can be used to estimate the extent to which observed correlations are attenuated by measurement error (Cohen & Cohen, 1983; Nunnally, 1978). To the extent that measurements are unreliable, correlations between those measures will be reduced, but an estimate can be made of what the correlations would have been if perfectly reliable measures had been used. Some controversy remains about when or if this correction should be applied (Cohen & Cohen, 1983; Nunnally, 1978), but even if used it makes little difference in the data presented here regarding intercorrelations across domains.

19), suggesting that the design of the earlier study had not prejudiced the results. , not 10 ­stories, 10 poems, or 10 collages), one might also question the reliability of the assessments used, which is an issue with any assessment technique. Interrater reliabilities are generally quite high, as noted earlier, but intrasubject reliabilities could be lower, and low reliability would artificially reduce the observable intercorrelations. Like any assessment, CAT assessments are not perfectly reliable, and a correction for attenuation can be used to estimate the extent to which observed correlations are attenuated by measurement error (Cohen & Cohen, 1983; Nunnally, 1978).

In a study of workplace performance, DeNisi and Shaw (1977) showed that self-reported ability did not predict test scores and should not be used in place of ability tests. The validity problems that self-report data have experienced in arenas with much higher stakes than most creativity research can be both large and troubling.
